Toronto duo Rainer + Grimm regularly end up in my list for favorite producers during open discussions on the subject. While they have had some major successes, I find they have yet to really break through at the level I know they are eventually going to. I felt the same way about CamelPhat 3 years ago… R+G just needs their, “Cola”.
With every release, R+G continue to prove my point. Their ability to create in nearly every sub-genre and pull it off flawlessly Is a testament to their production abilities and true understanding of the music they are making. Their latest release (+Video) for, “Talk of the Town”, featuring UK artist Plain English sees the boys taking a quick departure from the sexy R&B inspired Dance jams they have been dropping to dirty things up a bit.
Inspired by the UK Garage scene, Rainer + Grimm deliver a booming, bass heavy production while Plain English drops catchy, energetic vocals, all coming together to create a grooving yet hard-hitting dance floor filler. While he production may be one of the least technical I have heard from R+G as of late, that doesn’t make it any less bomb… in fact there is nothing more needed here.
Another solid release in a super consistent string of releases and another great addition to their catalog. Make sure you do yourself a favor and pay closer attention to R+G. It’s only a matter of time until the blow dafuq up.
